Care and Cleaning for your Jewellery

Care and Cleaning for your Jewellery


Plating is a process where a layer of gold is placed on to coat the surface of another metal. As the jewellery is not 100% solid gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan. Anything plated will eventually tarnish with time and wear.


 To decrease the chances of fading out, here are easy ways on keeping the lustre of your gold plated jewellery.

1.Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold-plated jewellery.
2. Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your gold plated ring, bracelet or necklace.
3. Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, and perfume may react with metal/plated jewellery and cause it to tarnish. This is also true for sweat, so make sure you remove your gold plated jewellery when you exercise or doing anything requiring heavy work and when swimming.
4. After every use, clean your plated jewellery with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold plated jewellery using a soft jewellery cloth, helps restore shine. Do not use a polishing cloth as this will strip away the plating.

If your jewellery needs more cleaning you may clean it with a soft cloth. Stay away from jewellery cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will make your gold plated jewellery tarnish more quickly.

To avoid scratches, wrap your jewellery in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewellery box separate from other types of jewellery you have. Small zip-locks work great.

Store like items together. Do not store gold plating and silver plating together. The different metals will cause each other to tarnish, fade and/or turn colours. Have different storage places for different colours of metals like gold and rose gold. Store in a dry area.
With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy wearing gold plated jewelry daily. Keep it away from chemicals and water, and regularly clean and polish it to keep your favorite pieces shining bright, worry-free.
Failure to use and care for your plated jewellery properly will void any claims.




Over time, gemstones will build-up residue from daily wear.  Place your jewellery in a light solution of ordinary dish detergent and brush lightly. Rinse under cool water and repeat as needed. Gently buff with soft cloth to dry. Be sure your piece is thoroughly dry before storing.

Here are helpful suggestions to keep your jewellery safe from wear and tear:

  • Always remove gemstone rings before washing your hands.
  • Avoid extreme temperatures when wearing your  gemstone jewellery.
  • Do not place gemstone jewellery in an ultrasonic cleaner. Do not steam-clean gemstones.
  • Do not use abrasive or household cleaners while wearing your gemstone jewellery. 
  • Do not rub gemstones with an abrasive cloth.
